Red Bull Update: Ticket and Stadium News

Big Apple Soccer is reporting that Red Bulls’ tickets for the first two home game are on sale now.  Specifically, tickets are being offered for the “soft” Santos opening and the official home opener against the Fire on March 27, 2010.  The article also notes that midfield and sideline seats in the 100 level are already sold out unless a Red Bull ticket plan is purchased.  For as little as $36 total, fans can purchase one ticket to each match in the Supporters section or for $46 corner flag seats can be purchased.

One of the interesting aspects of Red Bull ticket sales is that the best seats in the house have been the first to sell as season tickets.  That is important for a number of reasons.  First, it shows that season ticket holders are willing to invest in the most expensive seats.  Also, it means that walk-up fans will have access to the least expensive seats, which are typically favored by fans looking for seats at the last minute.

The Red Bulls are also offering family packs for both the Santos match and the Fire opener.  The packages are offered in groups of 4, 8 or 12 and include a $20 concession voucher. Prices range from $84 to $160.  The team is also selling 4 and 8 game packs in the 200 level of seats.
